Rock Hard 4x4 2007-2017 Jeep JK Wrangler Oil Pan / Transmission Skid Plate, Short Arm/Factory Suspension
Product Fitment and Description
Rock Hard 4x4 Parts JK Oil Pan, Transmission and Dual Catalytic Converter Skid Plate fastens to the frame in front of both motor mounts and at the main crossover in the rear for maximum protection. An extension on the left-hand side protects the normally exposed converter which would be a very expensive fix if damaged. Also, to make oil changes easy and to minimize clean-up, this skid plate comes complete with an oil drain access plate. All bolts at the frame crossover are replaced with tapered bolt head protectors to allow rocks to slide across them with ease and still allow you to get a socket on the bolt heads for removal. Our tests have shown stock drivelines to clear this skid at 40" of flex. Fits 2007-2017.
Midwest Jeep Willys is very selective in the Jeep aftermarket accessories we sell. We believe that Rock Hard 4x4 Jeep products are one of the best on the market today. Excellent quality, reasonably priced and best of all made is the USA.
Proven by the most hardcore Jeep JK drivers on trails like the Rubicon, Moab, Rausch Creek and more, our skid plate system's design is the key to it's popularity.
With creature comforts like laser cut access door to your oil filter to RH4x4 exclusive "rock dome" bolt head protectors for the supplied mounting hardware - our skid system is undoubtedly the industry's premium package.
Our system is cut and formed from a single sheet making it smooth and seamless. This gives you a true skid plate without rock catching and high centering flaws found in low-budget alternatives. We do more than just protect your oil pan, transmission, and dual catalytic converter system from straight on impact though - we have flared the sides of our skid plate upwards for side impact protection that also helps glide you off the obstacle rather than high center.
RH4x4 was the first to use laser cut and precision bent drop brackets that use your frame, not motor mount, as front support locations. This means our skid transfers zero engine and transmission vibration thought your chassis. This allows your motor and transmission to continue to flex in their mounts naturally without bracing them to your frame rails - completely negating the cushion motor and transmission mounts are designed to provide. This makes for a smoother and quieter ride like factory without the creaks, ringing, vibrating, and harsh performance of inferior systems.
The rear of our skid plate mounts to your transmission cross member. Included in our RH-6000 and RH-6000-LA hardware kit are exclusive and in-house produced "rock dome" bolt head protectors. These domes keep your bolt heads safe and accessible and versus damaged and sheared off.
NOTE: Aftermarket cross members may require customer supplied bolts. The pattern is correct however some manufacturers are using different thread patterns. With any other major vehicle upgrade does come the peace of mind of a professional installation.
Our skid plate system is the industry standard because of the confidence it instills in each and every customer. Each skid is laser cut from 3/16" thick steel coated in our weather and debris resistant powder coat finish. Strength is proven on virtually all Jeep enthusiast forums with glowing reviews. Since 2007 our skid plate system has been the undisputed leader in undercarriage protection.
